Some admitted students may be able to receive credit for prior work or military experience through AIU’s Prior Learning Assessment program, which turns eligible learning acquired outside of the traditional classroom environment into proficiency credits that count toward earning your degree. Our tuition and graduation calculator can help you estimate your expected graduation date based on the information you supply.
